Question about Watts Water Pressure Reducing Valve Series 25AUB-Z3 1"

1 Answer

I need to set my water pressure. I have a guage to do that with, just need to now how to use it. Do I turn the cold water on at the sink and check at a hose bib or do I check with all water off(except hose bib). I have set to 70psi with all water off, check later and the pressure has risen up to 100psi or more. I have set with the water on and it rises to 140-150 psi later when I check. I don't want to blow my pipes out but want to wash cloths and shower at the same time and have good pressure while doing both.

Cold water pipe into bathroom sink is very slow. Good pressure everywhere else


Take the supply line off the valve under sink and put bucket close to valve turn on and see if pressure is good. If not you need to replace. if its good then you need to remove valve at knob and check for dirt or grit. I usually will turn the valve on and off under sink real quick to clean out. replace any washers or o rings while you have it out.

No hot water pressure in kitchen, low cold pressure


sounds like a bad faucet//only if you had good pressure before it was installed..to cheaply test..take the hot water off from the shutoff valve and spray it into a milk jug to see if theres good flow..then replace the faucet assmbly..dont forget to turn off the shutoff valve first..or you will get a watery surprise!

I turn the shower on and it sounds like a machine gun going off until I turn on the bathroom sink a little to balance out the pressure. It happens only with certain hot/cold setting ranges. All hot water...


Did you ever find a solution? Mine does the same thing. I tried swapping out the hot/cold mixture valve, but to no avail. Any help would be appreciated! Dustin dustinrains@gmail.com

I have a brand new faucet not getting any water pressure? Water Pressure was fine before putting new faucet in. How do i troubleshoot this problem and get my bathroom sink running properly again?


It is very common when you first install any faucet, for the aerator on the very end of the faucet (where the water comes out into the sink) to plug up with rust or sediment. Because you had to turn off water supply, it churns up this sediment in pipes. It initially plugs up the filter/screen in aerator. Just unscrew the end & flush it out with water. Then reattach.

Looking for tank psi trying to get better water psi out of the shower and taps


Every faucet and shower have a water saving restricter in them. Remove them from the shower head and end of the faucets.
They are about the size of a dime and with about 1/8" hole in them in which water flows out. So the flow is getting restricted from 1/2' flow to this giving you a water saving about a 1.5 gpm.

Below is some more information for the web site please check it out for further help.
http://www.inspectapedia.com/water/Poor-Water-Pressure-Diagnosis.htm
Poor water pressure just at certain plumbing fixtures? poor cold water pressure, hot water pressure, or both hot and cold water pressure or flow that is observed just at some plumbing fixtures in a building while flow and quantity are good at others suggests that the water flow or pressure problems are local to certain runs of supply piping or to the specific fixtures. Check the following first:
  1. Clogged aerator or strainer on sink faucets - clogging by dirt, debris, corrosion, can significantly reduce both hot and cold water flow at a sink where the strainer needs cleaning or replacement. Unscrew the strainer from the faucet and turn on the water - if the fixture pressure or flow is much better you've probably found the problem.

    Look at the aerator/strainer: inspect it, clean it, perhaps soaking it overnight in vinegar to remove corrosion and mineral build-up, or just install a new aerator/strainer.

Water heater shuts off when the cold water is turned on


Not sure but check the inlet water at the heater, the filter may be clog up a little that restrict the flow. Did u use the heater at all during the winter? If not, the heat exchanger may be clogged with built up in there. U need to descale it. Good luck. Chinhcu

No water pressure in bath tub after turning off hot water heater


It could be back flowing into the hot water heater tank which is not full because of the leak. Even though the valve is closed on the cold water entry side, there is probably no valve on the exit side. That is how it is returning to the tank.

Culligan RO sstem has recently stopped producing more that 6 oz


This might be a possible tank pressure issue. This could also be a clogged filter. I would first check the tank pressure by using the following steps

Necessary Supplies:
1) Tire Gauge marked in 5psi increments (ie 5, 10, 15, 20psi, etc.)
2) Bicycle tire pump for standard type bike tire valve

To recharge RO System Tank:

1) Close cold water feed valve (valve located at some point along the cold water line from street plumbing).*
2) Leaving RO tank valve on, turn tank on side & locate valve stem on bottom side.
3) Remove stem cap.
4) Drain all water out of tank through open RO faucet into sink. (Continue to leave RO faucet open throughout procedure)
5) If current tank pressure is insufficient to empty tank, apply tire pump to valve stem and pump 10 – 15 times. Exit flow will increase and then gradually decrease as pressure equalizes. Do not overcharge internal bladder of tank during this procedure.
6) Repeat step #4 until tank is completely empty. (Tank is empty when additional pumping produces no more water)
7) At this point, adjust EMPTY tank to exactly 7psi. (Gauge reading midway between 5 & 10psi is sufficient)
8) Turn off RO faucet.
9) Replace cap on valve stem and reposition tank in upright position.
10) Open cold water feed valve.*
11) System water is useable immediately, however, tank will take 3-4 hrs to completely refill.

Washer issues


So...is there no cold water coming in?
If so, turn off the cold water and disconnect the hose from the washer, then ( with the hose in the sink or washer) turn on the water at the supply and verify normal water pressure. Check the screens in the inlet valves where the hose connects to the washer, make sure there is no gunk blocking water flow. Finally, if this doesn't help....you can either replace the water valve, or if you want to get intense, you can remove the washer cabinet and check with an electrical meter for voltage at the cold water wire harness. If you don't have 120v at the valve with the washer timer turned to the wash position and turned on, (where it would normally fill) you need to replace the timer, which supplies voltage to the water valves. Hope that helps...post again if you have more info or q's.
